James MarsdenAnother star of the "X-Men" movies, and most recently seen in "Superman Returns", James Marsden is a young face in Hollywood who is on the fast track to becoming a popular leading man.
Seen here, the clean-cut actor is wearing his hair in an "Ivy-League" haircut variant. The style is great for most hair textures and straighter to wavy hair types. It makes a good cut to balance heavy jaw lines, camouflage high or wide foreheads, and to soften angular features.
The Cut: The defining characteristics of this style are the lengths to which the top and upper halves of the sides are cut. Cut the perimeter of the hair in a traditional man's cut, following around the ears and with a squared outline in the nape area. The sides and back are cut in an upward taper to blend to the length established at the top of the head.
The hair at the top of the head is cut to a much longer length using a stationary guide determined by the desired length of the bangs area (generally cut to hang approximately eye or brow level). Use a razor tool to soften the ends in top and upper side areas.
The Style: After shampooing and conditioning, the hair should be sprayed with leave-in conditioner and styling product. At this point, you should use your blow-dryer and dry the hair, directing the airflow slightly upward as you go to maximize fullness. Use a round brush to direct the hair upward as it dries.
Dry to a mostly-dry state and use a small amount of anti-frizz serum spread through the fingers to give some gloss and shine to the hair. The hair can be styled with a side parting, or combed straight back and allowed to finish drying naturally for a moveable, style.
